Hello experts.  I am having some trouble running one of the group projects we created in our bootcamp.  If I may, describe the issue and can you recommend which additional files to attach to help with the detective work?

This was a working project that we presented(it was on a different laptop than mine).  I pulled it down from Github onto my laptop.  I worked through a few roadblocks and I do have it running on my localhost. Unfortunately, the html page that is loaded is blank.  When I open the html file in a Sublime  there is no markup in it.  I attached the index.html file.  There are comments in it I do not understand.  I was responsible for the backend while another team member took care of the frontend

Here is what I have in the server.js file for the html page:

app.get(function(req, res) {
   res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname, "./client/public/index.html"));

I attached a screen print of the browser console when the index.html file opens empty.

Thank you for your patience and help,
